These awards were introduced in 2010 to encourage younger members of the Guild to submit work for exhibition at Conference. Any member under the age of 18 may submit work into one of the following categories; U11, U16, U18.

There are three trophies, one for each age group, which were designed and made by Laura Ball, our first under 18 winner from 2010. Judith Harris was a long standing member of the Guild and Conference Secretary for many years. The trophies were funded by her husband, Douglas Harris.
